MTSU Poll Shows Close Vote Coming On Amendment 1

MTSU3A close vote may be in store for Tennessee’s proposed constitutional amendment on abortion, according to the latest statewide MTSU Poll.
The amendment, known as Amendment 1, would specify that Tennessee’s constitution does not include a right to an abortion. The recent poll of 600 registered voters, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, showed the following:
• 39 percent — for
• 32 percent — against
• 15 percent — undecided
• 8 percent — won’t/didn’t vote
• 6 percent — no answer
This poll was conducted Oct. 22-26 by professional interviewers with Issues & Answers Network Inc. The poll completed 600 telephone surveys among a random sample of adult Tennessee registered voters using a mix of 80 percent landline and 20 percent cell phones.
To pass, all amendments must have 50 percent plus one vote of the total number of votes cast in the governor’s race to be counted. This is required by the state constitution. (Information from WGNS Radio)
